Post Ford Engine ID, am I right?

I just recently received an engine from an old friend of the family that knew I was interested in rebuilding my '66 Mustang 289. He told me that the block he gave me was a 302. After much searching, I ran across a post here saying where the engine ID number was located (above the starter) and after much degreasing and scrubbing with a wire brush, this was what I found:

D20E - 6015 - AB
(or maybe 6045, there was something over the 3rd digit that I have yet to remove)

I was able to track down on a web site that it meant this engine(E) was a 70s block(D), 1972(2), for a Torino(O). I looked up a bit of info on the Torino, and found that in 72, it was only offered with one of two engines: a 250 6-cyl, and a 302 (Gran Tourino Sport and Gran Tourino Squire Wagon). Anyone able to verify the info I've found?

TIA,
Ryan

You are correct. It would be a 302 not a 289. Later, Jay

Hey 66stagnboy:

I was wondering what web site you got your block info off of. If you could tell me that would be great.

Thanks
Tom

Actually I found the link to the site I used for my identification here in another post. Forgive me for not remembering who posted this originally, but here was the link I followed:

<a href="http://users.abilene.com/~dkelly/hotrod/index.html" target="_blank">http://users.abilene.com/~dkelly/hotrod/index.html</a>

Check under the "Reference" category on the lefthand menu, Ford Engine Data.

Now that I know basically what I've got, I can start the dismantling and rebuilding process, hehe.
